Set within Banff National Park and surrounded by the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains, this isolated resort feels particularly special. The largest of Banff’s three ski areas, Lake Louise enjoys a long season from November to late April.

From the top of each lift you can choose either an easy or difficult run down. Strong skiers have lots of alpine bowls with super-challenging steeps and, if you’re keen for the backcountry, we’d highly recommend a day of heli-skiing with Purcell - trips depart from Golden near Kicking Horse.

The small village is a five-minute shuttle from the ski area and, with a few restaurants and a small shopping plaza, it makes a friendly base or a unique stop on a Rockies Loop Ski Safari. Your tri-area pass also includes Mt. Norquay and Sunshine Village (45 minutes by car or shuttle) - when you head off on day trips here, definitely pop into Banff town for an après drink.

"Lake Louise is one of my favourite haunts, particularly in late season - it always has good snow here. I love the steep skiing off the ridge and the views are second to none."
